Most Muslim extremists first radicalize their youth via sermon and brainwashing. One group, however, is skipping those steps and is taking the youngest of children right to the paramilitary route. But this group is not in Afghanistan or Iraq. No, it's in Philadelphia, the so-called 'City of Brotherly Love.'
The United Muslim Movement (UMM) was incorporated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in June 1994, with the goal of creating a central mosque in the city along with an organization that would be able to "respond to the social, economical, political, educational, and religious needs facing our [UMM's] communities." Less than four months later, in October 1994, its first mosque, the United Muslim Masjid, was opened.
The owner of the mosque property and the face behind UMM is music and real estate magnate Kenneth Gamble, a.k.a. Luqman Abdul Haqq.
